    When I go to my Display Settings, I can see monitors 1 and 2. Does this mean that I no longer have to add a video card? Please advise. Thanks.

IF you want to add another monitor you need to install 1 graphic card or AGP (Accelerated graphic card) card .
You can connect graphic card into pci slot of motherboard And if you purchase AGp card there is AGP slot on motherboard.
Then install it's driver then connect your another monitor then go t ocontrol panel->display property set your desltop monitor as primary and another as secondary then apply .
Connect another monitor to that graphic card.
Make sure your primary monitor is at left size.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

How do I add a 2nd independent monitor when a splitter cable does nothing but carry the #1 monitor display?


The rear of the unit has both an HDMI and a VGA output connector. If you have a digital-ready monitor with HDMI and a monitor with a VGA analog port you can run a cable to each. The on-board video adapter will detect the second monitor and support it. My computer has a VGA, DVI-DD and HDMI output and I am running THREE monitors off the onboard video.

  • you need 3 vga connector and 1 splitter to connect a dual monitor system.
  • connect one end of the vga connector to the pc unit and the other end to the input port of splitter.
  • now the 2 remaining vga connector connect to the output of splitter either of the port, then the 2 end wire you must connect to the input port ( pc service port ) of the 2 tv monitor. make sure you set up the right input either with the remote or at the tv unit to recognized the pc source.

How do you hook up an additional set of speakers to this monitor so that I have four speakers working?


You'd need to get a 3.5mm stereo audio jack splitter (aka "headphone jack splitter").
It'll look something like the pictures below.
You should be able to purchase one for a few dollars pretty much anywhere you buy electronics or audio equipment (Radio Shack, Best Buy, etc.).

Once you have that, make sure both your computer and your monitor are turned off.
-Then, unplug the audio cord (that goes from your monitor to your computer) from your computer (you can leave it plugged into the monitor).
-Plug the splitter into your computer where the cord was previously plugged in.
-Next, plug the cord into one of the open jacks on the splitter.
-Plug the audio cable for your *second* set of speakers into the other jack on the splitter.

You should be able to turn on all the devices and have audio coming from all the speakers now.

Cant extend workspace


The splitter you bought allows you to split one video signal into two. For example, a teacher using a computer to teach a class. She has one computer, one monitor she can see and then the splitter allows the students to see what she sees. To display independent screens you'll need to add another card to your system. Microsoft Help and Support lays out how to do this with Win 2000. No splitter involved.

Switching from PC monitor to an HDTV monitor


Yes, this product will do the job. An easier solution, although probably more expensive, would be to use a video card with dual outputs. Using a video card with dual outputs would allow you to see the computer's video on both screens simultaneously.
